Netherlands are about to be more strict against the illegal gambling operators, because as it seems, the whole situation has gone off limits. The Dutch regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has been issuing letters to the gambling sites who act without an authorization and the proper permits in the country, but nothing has been improved yet. Now the things are about to change a lot, since those gambling companies are about to receive a huge fine. It will be as high as €820,000 for those who have breached the rules and have been the most serious offenders. And equivalent to the value of 10% of sales to Dutch punters for all the other operators.
Kansspelautoriteit believes that its regulatory provisions should be followed by every operator in Netherlands and since the letters to the operators didn’t do the job, proceeded to more harsh measures. It will not be long though until the Dutch parliament will pass the Remote Gambling Bill that will change everything as it is now known about online gambling in Netherlands.
